Adding substrate, developing life-support systems and temperature balancing can all be done in a single week, but the process as a whole will take around eight weeks.

The profile sections come with fifty aquarium plants and more than a hundred popular warm freshwater fish that can be added in different stages.

This 208 page hardcover written by Stuart Thraves and published by firefly books in October of 2004 measures 10.1 x 8.5 x 0.8 inches and ships at 2lbs.
